Truckee River Day in Tahoe Donner, October 16

For the Truckee River Watershed Council’s 21st annual Truckee River Day on Sunday, October 16, hundreds will volunteer on nearly a dozen restoration projects across the region, including a Jeffrey pine sapling planting in Tahoe Donner hosted by our Forestry Department.

Sapling plantings are wonderful, even beautiful events. The work is fun, satisfying and easy. Get into a rhythm, and you might even find it meditative. For families with young children, there is simply no better volunteer event in Tahoe Donner.

Here are all the details:

The Watershed Council has been an extraordinary partner for our non-native, invasive weed work here in Tahoe Donner. This volunteer event is a great opportunity to repay their generosity by helping them to restore a native species to our forest.

These pine plantings are a great Tahoe Donner tradition, and we hope many of you will join in to lend a hand!
